Microsoft seems to be releasing updated versions of Windows 10 Preview Build at quite a pace. Although many testers are yet to make the upgrade to the latest OS Preview Build version 9926, Microsoft is already getting ready to release the next version. There was a gap of about two months between the 9926 and the previous OS Build version, 9879. Of course, the unofficial leaked Windows OS 10 Builds released in between do not count.
However, this time around, it seems that the Windows Insider program users need not wait that long to see the release of the next OS Build. Microsoft seems to be reducing the time gap between the OS Builds at least for the next release. This also suggests that Microsoft might be considering accelerating the Windows OS 10 development program in order to hit the market before summer.
